'Yes Or No' - Poem by Ernestine Northover

Hey, is there anybody out there?
Watching from a vast planet or two.
Peering silently from afar,
Inside a tiny twinkling star,
With a giant telescope, to see us through.

Hey, is there anybody out there?
Would they be a friend or a foe.
Finding it difficult to convey,
What they really want to say,
Do you think they'd recognise the word, 'Hello'!

Hey, is there anybody out there?
In that huge colossal universe of blue.
Can they reach here in a day,
From so many light years away,
Could they, creep up slow and then jump out on you.

Hey, is there anybody out there?
Ready to touchdown upon our earth.
Do we welcome them right in,
With a big smile and a grin,
Or scarper quick, for all that we are worth.

Hey, is there anybody out there?
'Yes or No' it could be either one.
It would really then tick off,
The many doubters who all scoff,
If the answer turned out 'Yes' that would be fun.

Hey, is there anybody out there?
Of course it's speculation and surmise.
But out there are boundless spaces,
Quite enough for different races.
And we humans will always be keen to analogize.

Hey, is there anybody out there?
Look my way, please, I'm waving at you!
